The Bucket List
When Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson’s Bucket List graced Hollywood, a lot of people I know made their own set of goals. This flick about two terminally ill men escaped from a cancer ward. They headed off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die.
I remember I also made my own, too excited to tick off a few items that created a significant impact on my life. More than pushing me to look forward to something, a bucket list reminds me of life’s meaning and purpose. All the more that it gives me that sense of direction in life. And with a clear mental picture of what I would like to aim, I am motivated to achieve that goal. A bucket list makes not a monotonous regime but fills my days towards a ‘purpose-driven life.’
The preoccupied world
In this present world where the busyness of life tends to leave our thoughts cluttered, so as our goals are pushed back. The growing noise of this world can easily drown the things we may consider relevant.
As we can be at lost, mainly when preoccupied of so many things, it is best that we re-align our priorities and set our goals in life. And we can do it by looking at our bucket list. Our to-do list will be our reminder of those goals. It will give us a sense of direction in life, and it will make us realize that we are living for a purpose. There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing we are doing the things we most love and wanted while creating everlasting memories we can cherish.
